A older Video Camera!

 

Panasonic PV-D209 is a great camcorder. WE bought this over a year ago. We had a house fire, and we wanted to buy the camera to record the progress of our house being redone.

Good quality picture, easy to operate

Only takes VHSC tapes.

The Panasonic VHS-C Palmcorder: Still a good value?

 

With the advent of digital camcorders, the typical consumer may be wondering if an analog camcorder is still a worthwhile purchase. If you're talking about a lower end Panasonic VHS-C, I'd have to say absolutely.

Good quality video, relatively inexpensive

Low quality audio

Best camcorder for the buck

 

I bought the Panasonic PV-D209 because we wanted a camcorder to film our children growing up. This the best camcorder for the money. Especially if you are on a budget. It is simple to use, and compatible with your current VCR.

East to use; great picture

battery needs charging every 2 hours

Product Specifications

Panasonic's PV-D209 is the perfect choice for great home videos without a lot of fuss. A sharp color viewfinder gives a true representation of your subject, and a 26x optical zoom and 150x digital zoom provide great flexibility. Panasonic's Digital Electronic Image Stabilization compensates for shakes and jiggles, and the full-size head system produces high-quality images in an easy-to-use VHS format. The PV-D209 also features MotionSensor technology, which initiates recording when motion is detected, and Color Digital Fade for more creative transitions.
